Forum: opensource_movies Subject: Filing many clips on the same genre

How do we deal with posting many clips of the same genre? For example, interviews on a particular theme or footage from a particular place?

Do I just post them separately and have them available via keywords, or can they be bundled into one entry? I wouldn't like to just merge the files into single giant files, either.

What say you?

You can make all the files have the same first characters, such as TALK_house1.mov and TALK_office2.mov and so on, and upload them all under the same name, such as TALKS IN PLACES. You'll have one entry with one description, with multiple related files available to download.

Here's an example:

Hmm... If I have three formats for each file, and if the files need to be further distinguished from each other, how does that work out? The example you're giving just says "Quicktime" for each.

? It works the same with multiple formats.

You can make all the files have the same first characters, such as TALK_house1.mov and TALK_house1.mpg and TALK_house1.wmv and TALK_office1.mov and TALK_office1.mpg and TALK_office1.wmv and so on, and upload them all under the same name, such as TALKS IN PLACES. You'll have one entry with one description, with multiple related files available to download.

Right now it's a bit of a mess for the download trying to find files given as movie_name_1, movie_name_2 etc. since they are sorted by filesize. How about having them alphabetically sorted?

See for example a recent upload with 23 files on the same theme:

You have to hover on each link and watch the status bar for file names. Now, that also works, but I'm sure there's a smarter way to do that.
